Pewaukee Lake Fireworks

Jul 4, 2023 @ 9:30 pm


The Pewaukee Lake fireworks will be at dusk, view them from Lakefront Park or the beach! Your family will enjoy these amazing memories!

The Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee have contracted with Wolverine Fireworks again to put on the 2023 show. The fireworks are shot off of barges on Pewaukee Lake, so see below for the best places to watch.

Pewaukee 4th of July Parade Pewaukee Lake Fireworks

Pending weather, decisions are being made on THIS FACEBOOK PAGE.

The factors under consideration:

• The fireworks company starts loading the fireworks into the tubes in the morning. Once they are loaded, they are committed to that day.
• Everyone is at the mercy of the weather. They are using barges; the threat of severe weather with wind is a major concern.
• They need to make a decision on fireworks by morning July 4th so they can begin loading tubes.
• Currently, the weather service is projecting 90% rain during the day, 90% at night with possible severe weather.
• If tomorrow morning it is decided to delay, they will establish the rain date. Tuesday looks slightly better, 40% day, 60% night.
• It is possible that the show might be moved to next weekend.
They appreciate the generosity of the community, both individuals and businesses that have contributed to this year’s fireworks!

  • On the hill next to High St. Bonus: ability to avoid the big crowds and far enough away that the big booms aren’t that loud.
